TenderWet Active Cavity Gel Dressing Pad, 2-1/2" dia.
Medline Tenderwet Active Cavity Dressing is a pre-saturated polyacrylate gel pad that rinses and debrides necrotic wounds for up to 24 hr and provides easier application. It is the ideal dressing for chronic, infected and necrotic wounds. Does not have hydrophobic back, allowing it to work from both sides of the dressing.
Helps debride necrotic wounds by creating a rinsing effect as large molecule proteins found in dead tissue and bacteria are attracted to TenderWet Active’s core.
Reduces pathogens by absorbing and retaining pathogens within the TenderWet Active pad.
Uses physiologically-compatible solution which contributes electrolytes such as sodium, potassium and calcium to the wound bed.
More effective than wet gauze therapy as can be left in place for up to 24 hr without drying out, while offering a barrier against microorganisms.
Helps create an ideal healing environment.
High fluid retention even under compression as it retains large amounts of fluid.
Easy application and removal, will not stick to the wound bed allowing for virtually pain-free removal.
